Middlesex, N.J. - August 31, 2009 - Ground logistics and transportation services provider Crane Cartage (CFS) has selected Aljex as its transportation management technology partner.

Crane serves as chairman of the board for the new company, which is based in Houston, Texas. With this added venture, Crane now has over 50 offices in 16 countries. Primary industry sectors served include oil, aerospace, technology, retail, and transportation. The total service footprint for all of Crane's companies includes all modes of transport, logistics, customs brokerage, and end to end supply chain engineering and management. The CFS group is a ground transportation services and logistics group that maintains a neutral profile in the transportation sector.
